How to whitelist HockeyApp

The following URLs are used by the HockeyApp platform and need to be whitelisted in your network firewall to enable users to reach HockeyApp from within your application:

You can whitelist the root domain for HockeyApp and CloudFront:

  • *.hockeyapp.net
  • *.cloudfront.net

Or you can whitelist the individual services on HockeyApp:

  • rink.hockeyapp.net
  • sdk.hockeyapp.net
  • config.hockeyapp.net
  • install.hockeyapp.net
  • gate.hockeyapp.net
  • cdn.hockeyapp.net
  • download.hockeyapp.net (only required for developers to download the SDK, not needed for users or testers)
  • *.cloudfront.net (required for all downloads)

Whiltelisting the chain of CNAMEs

gate.hockeyapp.net is a CNAME that resolves into a chain of CNAMEs. Depending on the firewall's configuration, it might be necessary for you to flag all of the CNAMEs, too:

gate.hockeyapp.net

canonical name = dc.applicationinsights.microsoft.com

dc.applicationinsights.microsoft.com

canonical name = dc.services.visualstudio.com

dc.services.visualstudio.com

canonical name = dc.trafficmanager.net

dc.trafficmanager.net

canonical name = eus2-breeziest-in.cloudapp.net
